A payroll deduction occurs when you remove funds out of an employee's pay before they receive the pay cheque. Legislation mandates some deductions, and some are because of a private agreement between an employer and an employee. The payroll platform default setup for a new business includes five basic deduction categories, such as Student Loan Deduction (SLBOR) and Family Tax Credit Overpayment.
The Deduction Categories feature allows you to create a new deduction category and specify details such as the category name, external ID, deduction type and the classification. You can also use this feature to edit any previously entered information and delete a record that is no longer required.
